Affirmation

Some days I feel on target as a new first grade teacher.

Some days I struggle and feel like I'm not accomplishing what I should.

Through it all, I get small affirmations - comments from friends, a child making a connection, a small note from a child, an unexpected hug.

The other day, I was gathering stories. I had told them to write a story about themselves. I found this.


Each day I know I'm just where I need to be.

  2. I love it- those little reminders are just what you need some times. Isn't teaching 1st one of the most challenging, yet most rewarding grade to teach? Your post made me miss it!
